Abrasive Material: The grinding surfaces of the wheels are coated with abrasive materials suitable for grinding and sharpening tasks. Common abrasive materials include aluminum oxide, silicon carbide, or a combination of abrasives for more specialized applications.
Wheel Type: Bench grinding wheels are generally thicker and more substantial compared to cutting and grinding discs used on angle grinders. They are designed to withstand heavy-duty grinding operations on a bench grinder.
Diameter: These wheels come in various diameters, typically ranging from 6 inches to 10 inches or more. The diameter determines the size of the grinding area and is chosen based on the bench grinder’s specifications.
Thickness: The thickness of the bench grinding wheel affects its durability and the amount of material it can remove during grinding. Thicker wheels are suitable for heavy-duty grinding tasks, while thinner wheels offer more precision.
Arbor Size: Bench grinding wheels have a central hole (arbor hole) that fits onto the bench grinder’s spindle. The arbor size must match the spindle size of the bench grinder for proper mounting.
Grit Size: Bench grinding wheels come in various grit sizes, ranging from coarse to fine. Coarser grits (e.g., 36 or 60) are used for heavy material removal and shaping, while finer grits (e.g., 80 or 120) are used for finer sharpening and smoothing.
Bond Type: The bond refers to the material that holds the abrasive grains together in the wheel. The bond type influences the wheel’s hardness, cutting ability, and resistance to wear.
Suitable Applications: Bench grinding wheels are used for various metalworking applications, including grinding, sharpening, and shaping metal tools, cutting blades, and other materials.
Grinding Speed: Bench grinding wheels are designed to be used at lower RPMs (revolutions per minute) compared to cutting and grinding discs used on high-speed angle grinders.
Safety Features: Bench grinding wheels are designed with reinforced construction to reduce the risk of breakage during use, ensuring a safer grinding experience.
Compatibility: Ensure the bench grinding wheel is compatible with your bench grinder’s specifications and that it meets safety standards and regulations.
